AT&T is the first carrier to announce their intention to carry this device, but I’d be lying if I told you they were going to be the only.
Following up on that news is another Android smartphone, this time from HTC, the new One A9. This new phone has been grabbing headlines for a week or so now and starting on November 6th AT&T will be adding this device to their catalog.

Both of these new wearables will come in at $15 a month for 20 months or $199 with a 2-year contract. Adding service to either device will cost $10 a month. Pre-orders kick off on November 6th will availability later this month. November 13th for the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition and November 20th for the Gear S2.
